Figuring Out If Its Time for AC Repair or Replacement

It can be a tough decision, deciding if your air conditioner needs repair or if it’s time to change your whole system. The expenses from incessant repairs can really accumulate, but buying a new air conditioner system can also be a huge decision. So, before you decide on either route, there are a few things to consider to be certain that it’s time to stop repairing and start replacing:

  1. How often does your system break down?
  2. If your air conditioner is between 10-15 years old, it’s probably time to start considering a replacement system. An AC built today will be more energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run and you won’t have to fret about being left to sweat it out during those hot summer days.

  3. Does your home feel uncomfortable?
  4. This is something that you should be able to note right away. If your house cannot hang around a fixed and comfortable temperature, your air conditioner is either the improper size for your home, in need of repair, or in line for a replacement.

  5. How old if your system?
  6. If you’ve noticed your bills getting higher and higher without running your system more often, this could be a clue your AC is on its last round. Look at your bill and analyze your energy usage this year to last year. A high increase in your consumption could be a sign that it’s time for a new system. As system’s age they have to work harder and that requires more energy.

  7. How high are your energy bills?
  8. A good sign that your air conditioner is close to dying can be examining your energy bills and observing they are getting more and more expensive. Assess your energy usage this year to last year and if you find a large escalation, know that the latest system can work less hard for an increase in comfort and that it will help with your home energy.
